The only thing I did was disconnect everything so I could bring my tower to a reachable level since it's on the very top of my desk then put it back up there.

You are correct. I touched none of the internal components as they were working fine before inserting the additional RAM.
I need clarification on this quote above.
What did you disconnect? I am thinking you are referring to you disconnected all the external wires and cables that go to your computer for the mouse, keyboard, monitor, printer is this correct?
Thanks in advance.

Nothing is loose or bent. I even went so far as to remove my brother's video card from his computer and try it in mine with the same results.
Please re-check your video cards VGA port, make sure it is not loose, this is the one the monitor connects to on the out side of the computer case.
It can happen that your VGA ports connection to the video card is loose and the port's soldered connection to the video card board has a faulty connection.
Check the plug on the cable from the monitor that connects to the video card for problems, such as bent pins, broken wires etc.

That was the first thing I tried. It gave me the same thing no matter if I had the original RAM in the original slots or moved them around to other ones. It did the same if I used just the new RAM too. I'm starting to think it's the motherboard as well. If it was just a video issue I would at least be able to hear the windows music upon boot but I'm not hearing that.
Is there any way you can return the original RAM sticks into the slots just as they were before in the same exact slots?
I am looking at the possibility that putting things back as they were might return things to the way they were.
It may sound crazy suggesting this, but in the 37 years of repairing computers I have seen stranger things than this possibility.
If this fails to work, I am going to suggest that the motherboard may be shorting out somewhere, but I want you to at least try putting things back to the way they were before you added the new RAM sticks.
In my field, we call this theory "A Process of Elimination" Believe me it works.
